Honor Not Just Among Thieves: Even Criminals Treat Our Soldiers Better Than Muslims Do

By Debbie Schlussel

Here’s an inspiring Veterans Day story . . . sort of.  On the other hand, it’s interesting to contrast the way even common criminals treat our soldiers versus the way American Muslims, like Nidal Malik Hasan, do.


Honor Not Just Among Thieves

A Milwaukee Army reservist’s military identification earned him some street cred Tuesday, when he says four men who mugged him at gunpoint returned his belongings and thanked him for his service after finding the ID.

The 21-year-old University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee student said he was walking home from work about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday when he was pulled into an alley and told to lay face down and with a gun to his neck. Four men took his wallet, $16, keys, his cell phone and even a PowerBar wrapper from his pants pockets, he said.

But the hostile tone quickly changed when one of the robbers, whom the reservist presumed was the leader, saw an Army ID in the wallet. The robber told the others to return the items and they put most of his belongings on the ground next to him, including the wrapper, the reservist said.

“The guy continued to say throughout the situation that he respects what I do and at one point he actually thanked me and he actually apologized,” said the reservist, who asked not to be identified Tuesday because the robbers still had his keys.

The reservist said he asked the men, who all had hoods or hats covering their faces, if he could get up and they said he could before starting to walk away.

“The leader of the group actually walked back, gave me a quick fist bump, which was very strange,” he said.

Yes, there still is honor among thieves and not just among them, when it comes to our soldiers. Sadly, the same cannot be said about Muslims. They reserve their honor for allah, alone. Until we realize that as a nation, more attacks on our soil will happen.

Criminals can be patriots. They would be out of a job without a country to protect them. They same can’t be said for those Muslims who will attack it if given the chance.

Meh. Just means they went and robbed someone else. Still scum.

I do see your point, though, Ms. S.

I’ll say this is at least a barrel more of respect the soldier got than the lip service that hurls out of the mouths of most politicians and celebrities(Why do we call them celebrities, anyway? What is it about them that we celebrate? Eh, never mind!)

i would trust a criminal before a most democrats, at least you know what the agenda is, with a democrat they will say whatever you want to hear then do what is best 4 them, then send 20 talking heads out to explain how they are being attacked unjustly

Yes, criminals can be excellent patriots.

I can’t see Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde, Jesse James and others putting islam before loyalty to U.S.

Ms. Geller: Request #3 Ma’am – Please put up a donate or tip jar on homepage. This job of yours is full-time and you deserve at least to recover your costs. You’ve done pro bono work for others, and have paid out of pocket for significant expenses.

P.S. I will keep up with these requests until I am either banned or you comply.
Thank you Ma’am.

Nice story! Why use it to perpetuate hateful language with, “…the same cannot be said about Muslims.” Since DS can’t seem to be Christian about her treatment of those 99%+ of Muslims who are not terrorists, I can only assume as a Christian she is willing to personally accept responsibility, by association, for the crusades – which primarily targeted muslims, the Spanish Inquisitions, KKK actions, and similar atrocities. I’ll expect the apologies for those to be coming soon…

All you have to see is the Hell’s Angels reaction to the Hippies protesting the Vietnam war and support of the Troops and love of country.

I wish more Muslims were like fellow Muslim Charles Bronson.

Marc – Christians didn’t perpetrate the Crusades or the Spanish Inquisition; the cult of Rome did those things.

Marc, DS is Jewish.

Were the KKK really based on a religious doctrine? KKK was and is a secular group made up of nominally Christians. Nice try though. Yes, let’s reach back to the inquisition to cover for the 99%, where is that stat from? The numbers I have seen from the liberal Pew Research and perhaps DS can elaborate more on the numbers re: support of Jihad, Islamic supremcy and the Holocaust.

The majority of Muslims are not in support of extremist movements. That can already be said if anyone here actually knows any Muslims. To group all Muslims into the extremist category is wrong and reeks of either stupidity or extreme ignorance.

Don’t forget the fact that there are Muslims that are currently serving in the military. Just like my colleague. I’d like to hear someone explain how they’re “an exception” or some other lack-of-substance excuse.
